SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Sunday was soggy in South Mississippi. Numerous showers dumped about an inch of rainfall in the area and tornadoes were reported across our region.

A tornado touched down in southeast Louisiana on Sunday morning. Reports of damage came in from Galliano, LA.

A waterspout formed over water and moved onshore in Fort Walton Beach, FL on Sunday afternoon.

And another tornado upended an RV park in southern Alabama on Sunday afternoon. One victim was reported to suffer serious injuries in Foley, AL.

However, no tornadoes struck South Mississippi.

"There was a very low, but not zero, severe damaging weather threat for the entire central Gulf Coast region," said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams. "And this threat was mentioned in a severe weather outlook from the Storm Predication Center issued as early as Friday."

"We were fortunate to have been spared," Williams continued. "But, hopefully everyone was prepared just in case severe weather would have struck."

There are no chances for severe weather in South Mississippi for the last full week of April, according to a Monday forecast.
